Recipe: a pitcher of Mojitos

A summertime favorite when mint in the garden is out of control. These are the measurements to make a pitcher in a pinch- not the authentic cuban recipe with sugar crystals!

  • 1 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 2 c lime juice
  • 1 1/3 c simple syrup
  • 3 c rum
  • 6 c soda water

Crush mint leaves in morter & pestle, add rum. Transfer rum and some of mint to pitcher, add the rest of the ingredients, mix and enjoy over ice!
